Cordova Meadows Elementary

Summary:

Cordova Meadows Elementary is a public elementary school in Rancho Cordova, California, serving 331 students from kindergarten to 5th grade. The school is part of the Folsom-Cordova Unified School District, which is ranked 572 out of 1,560 school districts in the state.

Cordova Meadows Elementary faces significant challenges, consistently ranking in the bottom 10% of California elementary schools over the past decade. The school's academic performance is well below district and state averages, with only 20.28% of students proficient or better in English Language Arts, 13.25% in Mathematics, and 11.76% in Science. The school also struggles with high chronic absenteeism rates, reaching 31.2% in the 2022-2023 school year. Additionally, 88.22% of Cordova Meadows students come from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, which is a higher percentage than nearby schools like Navigator Elementary, Cordova Gardens Elementary, and White Rock Elementary.

While Cordova Meadows Elementary performs better academically than some schools outside the Folsom-Cordova Unified School District, such as A.M. Winn Waldorf-Inspired and Starr King K-8, the school still faces significant challenges in improving student outcomes. Targeted interventions and support, including evidence-based instructional strategies, attendance and engagement programs, and additional resources for students from low-socioeconomic backgrounds, could help Cordova Meadows Elementary work towards providing a more equitable and supportive learning environment for all its students.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
